Now that 2018 is finally here, it’s time to make some changes. You’ve got all your resolutions written out, you’re balancing family, friends, and career, and you’re eating healthier, even if it’s a bit of a struggle after two weeks of festivities and drinking and consuming whatever you wanted. But one of the things you’ve been thinking about doing–and to be honest, every new year, you have the same idea–is starting a group site.
Whether you’re a mom working from home and passionate about sharing your productivity strategies with other working moms, or you’re interested in finance, helping other people find the best credit cards and credit repair methods–creating a group is a great way for you to share what you’re passionate about with people who share those interests. It’s the perfect time to start a group with GroupSpaces, and here’s why:
1 Sending email newsletters is easy
Knowing how to send emails that people are most definitely going to read is one of the most important skills anyone can have online. For example, did you know that personalized email messages, according to Aberdeen, improve click-through rates by an average of 14 percent and conversions by 10 percent? So if you’re writing engaging, exciting content and using all the right strategies that GroupSpaces offers, you’re sure to get a lot of new members in this new year. How?
Well, first of all, GroupSpaces makes it easier for you to send email newsletters. They integrate the email sending feature with all the other features, which means you won’t have to keep your email system separate from the group home or members list. And with most of the pricing plans, you’ll also get email statistics, which can help you easily keep track of what is and isn’t working in your email campaigns.
2 Signing up is simple
Once you’ve gotten some people interested in your group, the next step is getting them signed up as members. If you were running your own site online instead of using the GroupSpaces interface, then this could result in a large number of logistical complications. For example, if you’ve got 100 membership requests a day, it’s going to be quite a challenge to keep track of them and ensure on your own that you give them access to your blog or website, even if you’re one of the 89 percent of Americans who check their email at least once a day.
With GroupSpaces, it’s super simple: you can accept new member sign ups via an online form. You don’t need to wait to receive an email, then add that email to the list of people already in your group. Instead, it’s simple and automated, so you can spend more time on your actual group events and discussions rather than focusing your energy on signing someone up the second the notification appears in your inbox.
3 Organizing events is easy
When it comes to running groups successfully, being able to create in-person events is incredibly important. After all, what could be more community-oriented than connecting with people online and then being able to meet them in person, shake hands, and finally match a face with the person behind the screen? If yours is a group about emerging trends in cryptocurrencies and blockchains, then it makes sense to have your event in a downtown bar; if you’re a group of outdoors enthusiasts, then a picnic in a national park makes the most sense.
Wherever you decide to organize your events, GroupSpaces makes the entire process simple. Unlike many other online group sites, you can actually organize events for GroupSpaces via Google or Facebook, since they can be integrated together. It’s especially useful considering that Facebook has 2.07 billion monthly active users. And when it comes to selling tickets online and sending invites, GroupSpaces can simplify that process, too.
Additionally, when it comes to online meetings–such as forums and email discussions–GroupSpaces makes it easy for you to host. You’ll be able to keep everyone connected by sending out newsletters and creating email discussions with everyone on your email list.
